I’ve written before about Velcro Catch Ball using knit gloves to play. But today, we’re using knit hats to make the catch. My kids are loving this fun and easy catch game, helping to get us through these indoor winter days.

Catching Velcro Balls with our Heads

Here’s how you make and play Velcro Hat Ball:

  • attach stickyback velcro onto a small plastic ball. UPDATE: the more velcro you add the easier it is to catch, so load them up with about 6-8.
  • place your knit hat on your head and toss the ball up into the air
  • make the catch by jumping up and trying to have the velcro ball land and stick on your hat

Now you’re ready to play. You can play this alone by tossing the ball up and making the catch. Or you can play this with another person, tossing it to each others hat.
